TOUGH CALL FOR WITNESSES

If you do report any information you have about gun crime to the police, and are asked to appear in court, there are things that can be done to support and protect you:

  • Screens may be used in court to protect your identity. It's possible for you to have your voice disguised - your own mum wouldn't recognise you.
  • You may be able to give evidence by a live TV link, sometimes from the comfort of your own home. In some cases another person can be used to give evidence on your behalf.
  • The Witness Care Team will support you throughout the court case and afterwards. They can even help to arrange transport and childcare.
  • For free and confidential help for victims of crime, witnesses, their family, friends and anyone else affected visit www.victimcaremerseyside.org

 

THE WITNESS CARE TEAM WILL SUPPORT YOU THROUGHOUT THE COURT CASE & AFTERWARDS
